‘British Bulls**t Corporation’: Protest in Belfast accuses BBC of ‘biased’ Gaza coverage

bta1wp_cuaajim4.si

RT – Hundreds of protesters have gathered outside the BBC Broadcasting House in Belfast, expressing their concerns over what they see as “biased” reporting by the BBC on the current Israeli military offensive in Gaza.

At 8pm local time (19:00 GMT), a vigil was held to commemorate the victims of the violence, with the number of the dead currently over 450 people.

The protesters say that the BBC is pro-Israel in its reports. For instance, they say that the company provides little coverage of Palestinian solidarity protests in the UK.

Banners branded the BBC as “British Bulls**t Corporation” and called Israeli premier Benjamin Netanyahu “Antichrist.”

Stepping on the Path of Open Hostility – US to Create New Military Alliance against Russia

n25207

Andrei AKULOV | 22.07.2014

 

The US Congress is doing its part to escalate the tensions with Russia over Ukraine. The Russian Aggression Prevention Act of 2014, which is introduced in Senate, has been read twice and is referred to the Committee on Foreign Relations. It provides major non-NATO ally status for Ukraine, Georgia, and Moldova. Actually, the bill provides a blueprint for US intentions in Ukraine and Eastern Europe for the coming years.

Major non-NATO ally (MNNA) is a designation given by the United States government to close allies who have strategic working relationships with US military but are not members of the NATO. While the MNNA status does not automatically include a mutual defense pact with the US, it does confer a variety of military and financial advantages that otherwise are not obtainable by non-NATO states. MNNA status was first created in 1989. It stipulated that cooperative research and development agreements could be enacted with non-NATO allies by the Secretary of Defense with the concurrence of the Secretary of State. Read On…

Downed Airliner: Fake Audio Tape Shows US-Backed Hit to Frame Russia

Finian CUNNINGHAM | 21.07.2014

 

In a devastating twist to emerge over the weekend it now seems that the Malaysian civilian airliner downed over Ukraine was most probably brought down as a result of sabotage by the US-backed Kiev regime.

The purpose of this audacious act of mass murder – in which 298 lives were lost – was carried out with the intention of framing the Russian government. Washington, the chief sponsor of the Kiev regime, must have known about the plot, if not being fully complicit in it.

The key to this dramatic twist is the identification of incriminating audio tapes over the weekend as fake – tapes that were created initially to implicate Moscow, as part of a massive black operation involving the destruction of the civilian airliner and all those onboard.

Extension of the Gas War to the Levant

1-4689-1a5da-7-03dbf

After three years of war against Syria, “Westerners” have deliberately expanded their offensive to Iraq and Palestine. Behind the apparent political contradictions between religious and secular parties, strong economic interests explain this strategy. In the Levant, numerous groups have several times changed camps, but gas deposits are immutable.

Every war being undertaken by a coalition naturally has multiple objectives in order to meet the specific interests of each member of the coalition.

From this point of view, the fights now raging in Palestine, Syria and Iraq have in common that they are led by a bloc formed by the United States against the peoples who resist them, to continue the remodelling of the “Greater Middle East” and change the global energy market.

About this last point, two things can change: the layout of the pipelines and the exploitation of new deposits. Read On…

Iraqi Christians facing a ‘crime against humanity’

ISIS issued ultimatum to Mosul’s Christians to either convert, pay a tax, leave or face imminent execution

by Al Arabiya News | July 21, 2014

U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said Sunday that the persecution of Iraqi Christians who have been driven from their homes in Mosul by Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) militants could constitute a crime against humanity, Agence France-Presse reported.

Hundreds of Christian families fled their homes in the northern city Saturday as an ultimatum threatening their community’s centuries-old presence there expired.

Ban “condemns in the strongest terms the systematic persecution of minority populations in Iraq by Islamic State [of Iraq and Syria] and associated armed groups,” a U.N. statement said.

The United Nations chief highlighted that “any systematic attack on the civilian population or segments of the civilian population, because of their ethnic background, religious beliefs or faith may constitute a crime against humanity.”

Planned chaos in the Middle East—and beyond

An unholy alliance of the military-security-industrial complex and the Israel lobby in the post-Cold War world

by Ismael Hossein-zadeh | Intrepid Report | July 21, 2014

 

Geopolitical observers of the Middle East turbulence tend to blame the raging chaos in the area on the presumed failure of the “incoherent,” “illogical” or “contradictory” policies of the United States. Irrefutable evidence (some of which presented in this study) suggests, however, that, in fact, the chaos represents the success, not failure, of those policies—policies that are designed by the beneficiaries of war and military adventures in the region, and beyond.

Source tells award winning reporter Washington lying about responsibility for tragedy

by Paul Joseph Watson | July 21, 2014

Award winning former Associated Press reporter Robert Parry has been told by an intelligence source that the United States is in possession of satellite imagery which shows that Ukrainian troops were responsible for the shoot down of Malaysian Airlines Flight 17.

In the absence of any proper investigation, media rhetoric over the last few days has firmly pointed the finger of blame for the downing of the aircraft on Russian-backed Ukrainian rebels, but Parry’s source tells a different story.
